Two-man have been arrested for duping banks of crores by getting credit and debit cards issued by the use of stolen personal data. The accused Raja Saxena and Kautilya Sharma were arrested by Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force from a crossing near Gaur City Mall on Tuesday evening after officers received a tip-off.
